We are delighted to be sponsoring the feature race on one of Argentina’s premier racing days on May 1st at Hipódromo de Palermo in Buenos Aires.
The backing of the Gran Premio República Argentina is the latest in a string of high-profile sponsorships for SIS in Latin America, further underlining the supplier’s commitment to supporting the future success of racing across the region.
First run in 1887, this Group 1 contest sees horses race over a distance of 2,000 metres and is an important race in the Argentinian racing calendar. Miriñaque, who has won 6 of his last 7 races will be the favorite for the race.
The card also features five other Group 1 races, with one being a ‘Win and You’re In’ race for the Breeders’ Cup, with the winner gaining an automatic berth in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff in November.
All international racing content supplied by SIS is made available as an end-to-end solution, with round-the-clock betting events incorporating live streamed pictures, data, on-screen graphics with betting triggers, and an extensive range of markets and prices.
In total, SIS now delivers more than 35,000 live horse racing events each year, including premium races from Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Uruguay, and Panama.
Michele Fischer, Vice President at SIS Content Services, said:
“Our core business is providing horse race content to wagering operators around the globe while maximizing value back to the host track. We have invested in sponsorships across South America as the region has a strong racing culture that deserves to be supported and preserved.
“Hipodrómo de Palermo has been a long-time SIS partner and we are pleased to be a part of the Gran Premio República Argentina day.”
Hernan Fucile, Commercial Manager at Hipódromo de Palermo said:
“This day showcases six Group 1 races bringing together the best Argentine horses.
“SIS is a highly valued partner, and we are delighted to have their sponsorship on-track and distributing our races to bookmakers around the world.”
